Vocation Cup

We thank the following families for hosting the Vocation Cup this past week:

The Hernandez Family
The Gutierrez Family

The Vocation Blessing Cup is a wonderful instrument of prayer and devotion for our parish families. The Cup reminds each host family that it is their responsibility to pray for and foster vocations to the priesthood and religious life. A family is asked to host the Vocation Cup for one week. It will travel from home to home as a sign of our total parish commitment to praying for vocations.

Seeking Volunteers for the Vocation Cup

Bringing home the vocation cup is a wonderful opportunity to unite any family in prayer, bringing them closer to God and to each other while praying for vocations.

If you and your family would like to volunteer to take home the vocation cup for one week, please fill out the information below and turn it into the rectory office or drop it in the offertory basket.

Thank you for your support!

La Virgen María…

Quiere llegar a todas las Familias de Nuestra Parroquia para darles su Amor, Paz, Consuelo y dejar Entronizado el Corazón de su Hijo.

El Papa Francisco en el Encuentro Mundial de las Familias, en Filadelfia nos dijo: “Que Dios nos conceda a todos, ser profetas del gozo del Evangelio, del Evangelio de la familia, del amor de la familia”. Aprovechemos la Visita de la Virgen para compartir en Familia a través de la Oración del Santo Rosario.
